Class "A" Professional, Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club
Member Since: 2012
What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
I was an LPGA member when I came to the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club. My Head Professional Jim Pringle asked if I would be interested in applying for membership with the PGA of Canada. I was interested and I did become a member. I haven't looked back.
At which golf facility did you first begin working within the industry, and who was the PGA Professional?
Hirsch Creek Golf & Winter Club in Kitimat, BC is where I began my career in the business, hand-picking range balls off the range in 1981. It was back breaking work, however I was able to save my tiny pay towards my first set of Golf Clubs.
Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
My two children Erin and Ewen were the driving force towards my career. I have had the pleasure of working with both my children in the industry - now that is cool.
What is your most cherished golf memory?
I played golf at Torry Pines with Billy Casper. However my most cherished golf memory is playing golf with my dad and son. "Hey Grandpa, check out this shot". yelled my son Ewen. What a great day.
